Can't really help, but can relay my experience tuning an xl600.

Mine was hard to start and stalled easily when riding round on snotty stuff. Pulled the carbies off and the jets were not standard, so I got standard ones and it was super gutless and still wouldn't start well. Got a bunch of jets and played around and got it running and starting ok-ish, but then only had about 160km fuel range.

Other than that it was a great bike.

Yours sounds like a beast and a half.

you might get more knowledgeable answers in the advriders thumpers section seeing as you really need someone with xr600 modifying experience
These are the best days

Doug Fairbrother lives in Greytown, breathes bikes . He might be able to point you in the right direction. He's part of the Greytown Racing Team which you can find on facebook if you are into that stuff.
